Practice Examinations

Our practice examinations are available to support learners in their preparation for their examination of functional skills and are available in both paper-based and on screen formats. On screen practice examinations help learners to familiarise themselves with the various features of the system such as how to navigate through the exam, opening and resizing pop-up images and text, using the graph creator tool and using the method calculator etc… Please however note that on screen practice examinations are for familiarisation purposes only and responses cannot be saved. Therefore, if a tutor would like to mark the learner’s responses they must review the learner’s answers prior to the learner finishing the examination.
